Chattanooga firefighters tackled a large commercial fire downtown early Saturday morning, according to a news release from the Chattanooga Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to the old U.S. Pipe & Foundry building located at 2501 Chestnut Street at around 1:46 a.m. after witnesses at a nearby gas station reported flames coming from the location.

Precautions were taken while battling the heavily involved structure fire since there was a large diesel tank and several propane tanks on the site. Large tree-trimming trucks, possible timber and other equipment was also believed to be inside the building.

The fire was extinguished shortly after nearly four hours. No injuries were reported.
